Title: Updates

For those of you who haven't looked at the Announcements...
George has given the forum over to me.  I have added Phishisgroovin as a second admin, and Lithicbeads and Hummingbirdstones are now both Global Moderators.

We will be making some changes here and there to hopefully make your forum experience bright and sunny!  We are looking into cheaper hosting service for the forum, and if we find a cheaper host we will be doing a move.  Right now we pay more a month here to keep things ad free and purchase disk space than some forums pay for almost a half of a year with unlimited disk space for images.  As soon as we find ourselves something suitable, we will let you know.  SMFforfree is not free.  You pay to keep it ad free, you pay for image storing space, and you have to pay for features as important as a database backup.   bricks21  That said, we are on the hunt.

Stay tuned for further details and information!

Thank you for taking this on. I learn a lot from this site and would hate if it disappeared.

The new server is up.
The backup here is in progress and anything posted after 11AM Central time today to this forum will not be in the backup and will be lost once the forum has moved.
If you wish to start new topics/postings, go to the new site, grab a membership and post. (
